  • Short Summary

    Machinery and moulds used in the Royal Mint are featured - commemorative coin is struck.

  • Description

    No title or intertitles. Unedited material.

    C/Us of various moulds and machinery used in the mint. C/U of the mould that is being used - it has a picture of a lion with the towers of Wembley Stadium in the background and the inscription " British Empire Exhibition." Presumably a commemorative coin is being struck for the Wembley Exhibition of 1925. The cast is held in someone's hand. It is quite large - about the size of a dinner plate.

    C/Us of the machine used - man operates a large press. C/U of him placing metal in the press. He opens out the mould to show the coin (difficult to see). C/U of various casts of the head of King George V and of the stamps used to make coins.

    Note: two EP091 reels exist. This reel is made up of unedited material which may, or may not, have been destined for Eve's Film Review or Pathe Pictorial items.
